Re: 2013 Cheering/Farewell/Hasta La Vista Thread

22 Winners and 14 Unforced Errors is the best I've seen from her in a long while...it's really nice to see her playing well for a whole match for once...

now good luck not being double bagelled by Vika

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Mostly good play by Flavia. But her serve ist still a mess and I think it has been like that all the way since her comeback.

Vika injured her knee in R1. Not saying Flavia has to win this now, but...

Re: 2013 Cheering/Farewell/Hasta La Vista Thread

according to ANSA (Italian News Agency), despite her good win today, Flavia is thinking about retiring from professional tennis

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Saw it on federtennis earlier.

Sorride invece Flavia Pennetta, che ha battuto Elena Baltacha per 63 61 mostrando a tratti un bel tennis. La brindisina proprio contro la britannica aveva giocato nel 2000 il suo primo match qui a Wimbledon nelle qualificazioni ed anche in quell’occasione aveva vinto. “Sono contenta, ho giocato benino a momenti, mentre in altri dovevo probabilmente essere più incisiva. Ma è quello che mi è mancato dopo il mio rientro, l’intensità. Faccio ancora fatica a ritrovare il senso della partita, a gestire i momenti di tensione”. A 31 anni è scivolata al numero 166 del ranking mondiale a causa del lungo stop per l’intervento al polso: “Il mio obiettivo quest’anno è creare le motivazioni e le condizioni per andare avanti nel prossimo. Sto lavorando bene e la passione per questo sport è ancora intatta”. Intanto al prossimo turno dello Slam di Church Road troverà la favorita numero due Victoria Azarenka: un’avversaria durissima. Flavia, che sull'erba londinese vanta due ottavi nel 2005 e nel 2006, non si scompone: “E’ la classica partita in cui può accadere di tutto…”.


Sounds like she doesn't want to retire but also doesn't want to be stuck in challengers.

Re: 2013 Cheering/Farewell/Hasta La Vista Thread

i understand her and she is rite, she doesnt deserve to play in ITF, and i would totally support her if this is her decision, but still...it will be heartbreaking for me, i follow tennis just thank to Flavia.

Re: 2013 Cheering/Farewell/Hasta La Vista Thread

Does she still have a PR? She should at least keep trying for the rest of the year.

Yes, I agree with you, mostly because she's been the reason why I started following this sport, but I also believe that she should have entered a couple of ITFs in the first days of her comeback, that would have boosted her confidence and made her game more secure...like Petkovic wanted to retire after the fail of FO qualies, entered Marsille and won it and now she's on a roll and Andrea has a much more limited game than Flavia

she has, so she's kind of secure to play big tournaments until the USO I guess

Andrea was criticized heavily for her schedule in her subforum, too. We all felt that she played Marseille way too late. But it turned out well for her in the end.
As for Flavia, I think smaller WTA tournaments would be good for her. That's why I was sad to see her pull out of Nuremberg. Strassbourg worked well, and I think she could have done almost as well there.

She's entered Palermo and then two strong HC tournament in the US, using her PR in the latter two cases.

Although I wanted Flavia to win properly, I think we can say she deserved a bit of luck after all of her own struggles.
